Serena Williams can be placed under Wimbledon number one


Seven times champion Serena Williams can be placed under Wimbledon number 1 even if she can not return to the top 32 of the world rankings before the tournament. The 36-year-old is currently 449th in the world after returning to the court after the birth of her daughter. Serena said tennis players returning after birth should have a place in the rankings and be placed.

All-In-One CEO Richard Lewis initially said Williams was unlikely to be placed if he was out of the top 32 before the tournament on July 2. Later, however, the club announced that the Wimbledon organizers had the right to determine the rankings regardless of the rankings. `The order of those placed follows the women`s rankings except in cases where, in the opinion of the committee, there is a need for change to reach a balanced draw, ` the club said. The Wimbledon Wimbledon meeting will be held this year on 26 June.

Serena, who gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia in September, played four games after returning to the court. She lost to her older sister, Vinus in Indian Wells, and then dropped out of Miami after losing to rising star Naomi Osaka. After World Wells, world ranking leader Simona Halep said Serena Williams `was supposed to be number one, ` and Miami tournament director James Blake said that the rules for determiningtennis players who return after pregnancy are a `kind of punishment`. Unlike Serena, the star of the hosts, Andy Murray, will certainly not be placed if she has not entered the top 32 in the world. The 31-year-old Scot, who is a two-time Wimbledon champion, has not played in an official match since last year`s London tournament, dropping into the quarterfinals due to a thigh injury. Murray underwent surgery in January. `We take into account the results of grass from previous years, but we have a deal with ATP to follow the computer formula Andy will not be among the top 32 if he is not in this formula, ` Lewis said. This means that Murray can face Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal in the first round.
